Donald J. Pliner welcomed guests into his Empire State Building showroom to present his Spring/Summer ’17 collection during New York Fashion Week. The collection featuring both women’s and men’s footwear was an intelligent nod to modern sophistication. Pliner's statement making metallic floral appliqués leaned towards a romantic notion for Spring while studded cross-straps provided that edge that every shoe closet needs. With chic wearable evening heels and classic styles including slides, mules and wedges, Pliner has covered his client for every ocassion.
The men’s Pliner collection was a real standout. His men's dress shoes are stylish and sophisticated in variety of skins and shapes. An innovation exclusive to Pliner is a loafer with a silicon band rather than the traditional metal. A favorite style was the hombred patent and suede loafer with horsebit detail. A contemporary twist on a classic style fit for any closet. Pliner rounds out the men's collection with boating shoes, slides and modern classic the oxford/sneaker. The collection was overall stylish, strong and very wearable.
